One of the nicest beaches in the country. Blue Flag rated and lots of golden sand. Great for swimming and for walks along the shore

So much to do! Beautiful rivers - softest sand - warm sea water - safe beaches to swim - long walks - rocky pools - volley ball - water skiing - wild life - small town. Where dreams are made!

Wide space, ample parking (visited in quiet season!) Beautiful lagoon, clean, open spaces, great for picnic, although wind dependant.

I just love this place! Absolutely everything you could ask for in a Eastern Cape beach. Great surf, wide open spaces and enough room for everyone. Clean ablutions and well maintained. Lovely family beach. Homewoods restuarant is just around the corner too - easy access.

If you mean the Kenton Primary School - look them up on Google and facebook. Sorry Tripadvisor does not allow a direct link.
